Stephen Fry Quits Twitter in 80 Characters, Miley Cyrus Yet To Respond

by | 31st, October 2009

fry_twitterFIRST Miley Cyrus quits Twitter and now Twitter fan Stephen Fry says he will leave the social network.

Says Fry, on, er, Twitter:

“I’m obviously not good enough. I retire from Twitter henceforward. Bye everyone.”

That’s 80 characters (with spaces) of the 140 allowance. Plenty of time, then, for Fry to reconsider.

Someone says Fry is “a bit… boring”. But Fry has gone. Gone. How’s that for boring? Oh, look out. He’s back:

“Think I may have to give up on Twitter. Too much aggression and unkindness around. Pity. Well, it’s been fun.”

That’s 108 character (with spaces). He’s getting more verbose. He can go on a bit:

“Well maybe I’ll see how I feel in a few days. Very low and depressed at the moment and any drop of meanness makes it so much worse. Sorry.”

He’s up to 137 characters. Now, Fry is motoring. You want boring. You can’t handle boring. Can you make it to the end of a Stephen Fry Tweet without losing the thread and falling asleep? He’s challenging. He’s toying with you?

And now they come to praise Stephen Fry:

“Instead of leaving why not use your influence to raise awareness of how much cyber-bullying affects lives?”

Yeah, that won’t be boring.

“Dearest Stephen-the fragility of the tender soul is what makes it so special like the wings of a butterfly – stay.”

Why not the wings of a moth? Moths get such a bad press. Stephen. Your views?
